A powerful earthquake has hit India's remotest north-east region, leaving at least 11 dead and injuring nearly 200.

Reaching a magnitude of 6.7, the earthquake killed six people in India and 5 in neighbouring Bangladesh, while tremors were felt in the Himalayan nation of Nepal, as well as the Myanmar city of Yangon. Rescue efforts have been hampered by severed power supplies and telecommunication links, which have resulted in emergency services slowing down in assisting those who have been wounded.

The extreme shockwaves have left large cracks in walls of buildings and demolishing homes, with a portion of a popular market buildings collapsing in the state capital. Death and injuries were mainly caused by falling debris in the Manipur city of Imphal, an area which was affected severely.
